New power equation to change the speed of government: Prachanda

Kathmandu, March 17: Chairman of CPN (Maoist Center) and Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ has said that a new power equation had to be formed to bring about change in the speed of the government and for collaboration between the communist forces.

Addressing a gathering of the party’s leaders and cadres in Pokhara this morning, Prime Minister Dahal said the Congress has betrayed many times and it was not likely that votes would be ‘transferred’ from the Congress to our party. “On the one hand the government was not accelerating while on other there was mistrust towards the coalition, hence a new coalition had to be formed,” Dahal said.

On the occasion, the CPN (Maoist Centre) chair also shared that a month-long campaign is being organised to strengthen the party. “We are conducting a national awareness campaign covering the Tarai-Madhesh from east to west. The campaign will also connect the mountains, hills and Tarai-Madhesh north-south,” he said.

According to the personal secretariat of the Prime Minister, Dahal said that there is a possibility that the Maoists will take over the leadership in Gandaki province. “We are doing homework for the formation of the government in Gandaki. Once that is over, we will come to a conclusion.”

The Prime Minister also made it clear that the defense and strengthening of the constitution and consolidating the communist movement are the main basis of forming a new coalition in the centre. “When the communist movement is divided, the reactionary forces become stronger in national politics. It would bring a crisis to the governance. That challenge has been overcome. The country’s politics is now on the right track,” he said. #Nepal
